Blue Knits And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Balenciaga Bags

Wearing my favourite colour, blue, always gives me a bit of a boost. And when it's been a tough end to winter with kids getting sick, I default to blue! Keeping things colourful and wearing two of my blue knits with bold skinny jeans.

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

This was one of those days that just did not go well. The plan was a brief stop to pick up a few things in Kmart, maybe have a browse, and then head back home in time for a doctor's appointment.

The reality was me arriving at the shopping centre, then almost immediately rushing in looking for anyone with ice and / or first aid skills. After everything was okay, I had a bit of a shell shocked browse around Kmart missing half the things I needed to get, before going to the doctors. Not my best day!

Thankfully no major damage done, my son's injury looked worse than it was and all of the blood washed out of this knit (I decided to risk it and throw it in the normal wash with normal detergent, it held up okay!). And I did like the outfit. Horrible day, but otherwise lovely outfit!

Blue and purple is a colour combination I wear often, and I felt this Balenciaga work bag was overdue a wear. I like how nicely it matched the purple skinny jeans, you know I like a bit of matchy-matchy in my outfits sometimes.


Last worn: blue knit, purple skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga work bag. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it is a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the blue knit and colourful skinny jeans combo in the first outfit, I wore the same outfit formula a few days later. For a much more relaxed day!

It was a lot windier than expected though and I did wish that I'd put a long sleeved tee under this knit instead of the short sleeved one I did. It made it a little chilly when playing outside in the playground at playgroup with the boys.

This parrot print scarf is frequently worn with green - with the green birds in the print it's just to easy to wear it with the green jeans! I loved how all of the colours came together in this outfit, even if it wasn't as warm as I'd have liked.

The white Converse seemed like a good neutral shoe choice with the other colours, and I went with a neutral bag as well, my Balenciaga day bag. While I did like matching the bag and jeans like I did in the first outfit, I don't have a green bag to wear with this outfit.

How You Can Wear It:

Blue knits are a nice way to add some colour to your cold weather wardrobe, working in spring, autumn or winter. For an extra touch of colour, try wearing them with colourful denim. I love blue and purple and blue and green together. Having the bright jeans was a good way to try other colour combinations. Of course you can also pair a blue knit with a neutral black or grey pair of jeans if you'd prefer.

Sorry to hear you had such a horrible day though! The second outfit is equally pretty: I love blue and green together. The parrot scarf is so cute too! ;) XXX

  18. Stunning photos Mica!
    I agree defaulting to blue is always a good idea. I love the blues and plum together as well as the emerald green combination. I certainly hope that you and your children are better by now. Sending warm hugs.
